Raising a child is more than just a full-time job. As a parent, it can be challenging to juggle everything in life in addition to making sure that your kids are well and developing into well-adjusted independent individuals. But things happen, and issues can arise with children, whether they are behavior based or caused by a traumatic incident. Here at Mars & Venus, you and your child can meet with our Oradell child counselor to get to the root of the problem and figure out a plan that will help you both improve the quality of your lives.
Child counseling is often part of family counseling, especially since issues that involve children are often caused by family issues like death or divorce, and other concerns have a direct relation to parenting and how everyday caregiving can be adjusted or administered. Kids can suffer emotionally and mentally just as adults do, and kids can suffer from a number of different issues. Children and adolescents may experience emotional, psychological or social distress during their youth, which can have a profound impact on their overall development as a person. Seeking out help when you notice something off about their mood or behavior, such as aggression, depression, anxiety and more, then it is time to speak with a professional. Here at Mars & Venus, you and your child, and in some cases your entire immediate family, may want to meet with our Oradell child counselor to go over what has been happening as well as to discuss options for treatment. We treat each case individually, working with clients one-on-one to determine what will work best for the child as well as the family as a whole.
Through family therapy here at Mars & Venus, families or individuals within a family will learn more effective ways to communicate with one another, learn different style of interacting, and how to resolve conflicts in a way that works best for them as a whole as well as individuals.
